Cool CD. The "Stars" track has the longest guitar solo I have ever heard.

From: Jimbo Date: February 8, 2003 at 23:31
Done as a heavy metal answer to Band-Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas", this charitable endeavor has its good and bad moments. Mostly a hodge-podge of album cuts, the brightest spot is the opening song "Stars". Several vocalists belt out the lyrics a la Band-Aid, but the new twist is the four-minute-plus guitar solo. Viv, Malmsteen and several others shred through a couple dozen measures, each new guitar trying to out-do the one before it. Great song, cool concept, but worth $30? Ummm... Yes.

Always nice with such an allstar collaboration...The "Stars" track in itsel is a mediocre attempt but the fact that the who's-who of heavy metal of that time joined forces is a very good sales technique...Hehe Anyway it is actually rather cool especially when you try to point out the different shredders in the loooong solo...The included radio interviews on my version are mindless though. I have the STARS video too...Geoff Tate appears in the studio wearing sunglasses...Must have been stoned...

The band POWERGOD from Germany made a cover song of the song "STARS" on their tribute to the 80s cd(they also cover bands like TNT, SAVAGE GRACE, STRYPER, MARS, and many more). BLEED FOR THE GODS is the name of the album. I think that any Hard rocker or heavy metal manic will love the cover songs that POWERGOD plays. buy or die.

I only have this on cassette, unfortunately, but this is a really cool album. "Stars" is a great tune, possibly a little dated nowadays, but worth it for the great lineup of vocalists and that awesome guitar solo. Also of interest to Y&T fans for including the studio version of "Go For The Throat". The rare live Kiss and Rush tracks make this one a keeper.

That was Great... I love DIO... I love pure Metal...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 17, 2006 at 19:36
Excellent compilation and the main song "Stars" is a huge epic anthem.Record companies do not do this anymore with heavy metal bands that's because maybe it ain't renteable anymore.Anyway if you have the chance to grab a copy do it.10/10

From: metalalways Date: February 27, 2007 at 20:59
this cd kicks ass love the song stars and all the live songs is good too love the long guitar solos like the motorhead song.

From: juan carlos Date: December 12, 2007 at 8:31
Grande DIO!! Juntó y de que manera a los "Stars" del momento en el mundillo de Heavy Metal, Aún conservo el VHS de ese Temazo de mas de 7 minutos con Solos que enganchan, si hasta el Maestro Schon se manda su solo. Ya la lista de los famosillos Invitados a Este album lo deben conocer todos pues nada, los temas donados para esta Noble causa no están nada mal, tanto los en vivo que son la mayoría como las dos de estudio. Grande Maestro!!. 9/10

An objective comment is that this was a good album recorded for a good cause ...the main track "Stars" and "Hungry For Heaven"(Dio)are my faves...the ones by Accept,Rush,Kiss & Scorpions are also classic cuts.87/100
